think of a finer u.s. senator on either side of the aisle. and i don't have to speak to john mccain's reputation when it comes to military service. we know the story. a navy pilot shot down over vietnam, captured and held captive, subjected to torture for more than five years. john's body still bears the scars of that terrible experience. thank god he survived it and he continues to serve here in the united states senate representing the people of arizona and literally the nation in his capacity as a u.s. senator. he has been the ranking republican on the armed services committee so he knows issues not only as a veteran -- a man who served in the vietnam war -- but also as a senator who has looked closely as each of the issues that affect the department of defense. he doesn't hold a candle to anyone -- take a step back to anyone when it comes to his commitment to our military and our nation's defense. and now it's my responsibility to come to the floor of the senate and argue against an amendment that senator mccain is offering on the department of defense bill. you think to yourself, durbin, ho

cruz behind the scenes has offended john mccain, lindsay graham, over the filibuster against john brennan he has managed to ruffle a lot of feather in both political parties. >>> ted cruz has promised to shake things up in his own party. remember during the confirmation hearing for chuck hagel, remember during the benghazi hearings with senator clinton. he was tonally the most aggressive. he is not playing by the traditional rules of the senate. and to be frank, the people who support ted cruz, many of the people who voted for him, that's exactly what they want. >> but amy walter, at some point the senate is senate. he's going to need republican support and democratic support to get through something he needs. john mccain called him a whacko bird. >> the other day ted cruz said i take that as a badge of honor. to chris's point, you have to give ted cruz some credit. which he came with this tea party fervor and it hasn't gone away. but the senate and the house are two very different places. folks in the senate will tell you this is the place where decorum and rules and you know, th

senator john mccain, massachusetts senator mo count, and peter king to introduce a resolution to pardon jack johnson. jack johnson was a legendary competitor that defined an era of american boxing and raised the war for all american athletics, said senator reid. his memory was unjustly tarnished, and it is time to recast his legacy. senator john mccain said we can never completely right the wrong perpetrated against jack johnson during his lifetime, but this pardon is a small, meaningful step toward acknowledging his mistreatment before the law and celebrating his legacy of athletic greatness and historical significance. senator cowan said jack johnson was one of the great african-american athletes, his skill and perseverance to get back up every time he was knocked down made him a champion in the eyes of the sports world and for those that like him pursued their dreams despite racial in tolerance. jack king said he is a trail blazer and legend whose boxing career was cut short due to unjust laws and racial persecution. i urge congress and the president to take the final step and

house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fingers at the rebel forces. the rebel forces are pointing fingers at the government. you notice the language that jay carney used today was quite different in terms of referring to the rebel forces. saying at this point in time there is no credible evidence to suggest that they used chemical weapons. they are taking these reports very seriously, though, and trying to determine if this was, in fact, the case. now, of course, president obama has made it clear that his red line in syria is the use

caution sign for democrats and republicans such as john mccain who are really hoping that this signals something. marco rubio that signals this is a break through for the fact that he didn't mention it. shows a certain level of discomfort or hesitation of bringing it up in a crowd where he knows there are people there who do not agree with the idea of comprehensive immigration reform. this is a marco rubio is a guy who within the white house, they are obsessed with marco rubio's moves for the very fact that he's viewed as a very credible messenger for republicans on immigration, democrats fear him. republicans know that he's very good at talking about this issue and the fact that he didn't bring it up in that forum just as michael steele said, it could have, it was a missed opportunity. >> especially since the cpac, the cpac audience is a mixed bag. he's not talking to the house raucous caucus of republicans. as the chairman points out, it is a way to try and at least get the troops on board. >> what's discouraging about it is he's trying to do two things right now. one he's running fo
